The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) claim that President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent body language and statements are to blame for rejecting Nnamdi Kanu’s bail plea.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Justice Nyako postponed the pro-Biafra activist’s case to November 14, 2022, awaiting the Appeal Court’s decision.
After the High Court denied Nnamdi Kanu’s request for bail, it was believed that his legal team will submit an appeal to the Court of Appeal.
The IPOB leader is facing charges of treason, leading an unlawful organization, and bail skipping.
IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, claimed in an interview with Newsmen that the group’s members were not surprised by the court’s decision and did not find it shocking.
He said that Buhari’s comment on the matter during his recent meeting with the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, in Rwanda was aimed at intimidating the judge to dismiss the bail application.
Powerful, however, advised IPOB members and Kanu’s supporters to stay calm, assuring them of victory at the end of the trial.
He said, “Buhari’s recent statement in Kigali, Rwanda was a testament that he has lost focus because he said he won’t interfere in the judicial process on Nnamdi Kanu, but was talking with both sides of his mouth.
“IPOB understands the body language of Buhari and his Federal Government that they will influence Justice Binta Nyako to drop bail applications for Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom.
“But we are ready to wait for them. We want to use this medium to inform humanity, particularly Biafrans to stay calm and that victory must come to us.”
